Download the EDXL 101 Webinar and Slides

This one-hour briefing on the EDXL suite of standards was originally presented 15 July 2010. It provides an overview of EDXL and explains how implementation can enhance interoperability and information sharing capabilities in the emergency management and response domains. The presentation highlights the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and the Distribution Element (DE) and includes specific implementation examples.

OASIS TC seeks feedback from users of emergency response standards

The OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee is seeking input from users who have implemented the EDXL-Distribution Element (DE).  Use cases, requirements for new elements, enhancements to existing elements, and other suggestions are welcome.  This feedback will form the basis for discussion and consensus on possible changes and enhancements to the EDXL-DE.

For details on what information is being sought and how to submit comments, see the open letter from Elysa Jones, chair of the OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee.

FEMA Reaches Milestone With Integrated Public Alert & Warning System

Earlier this month, on October 13, the Organization for the Advancement
of Structural Information Standards (OASIS) voted to approve the OASIS
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.2 USA IPAWS Profile as a technical
specification for public alert systems. The profile will enable
emergency managers across the country to use a common format for
creating emergency alert messages that can travel across multiple alert
systems. The availability of such a profile furthers FEMA’s objective
of increasing interoperability across federal, state and local alert
systems.

The OASIS EM TC and the EMA TC invites the public to the Emergency Management Interoperability Demonstration to be held at EMEX
